Ingredients: Water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast.
The aroma of this beer is agreeably gentle and is carried by a discreet bitterness while the balance between the malt and hops relies on fruity accents and a lightly fresh aftertaste.

Helsdon (337) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2016
Pours a cloudy blonde with a big thick head, and lots of active carbonation. Nose of hay malts, sharp yeast and a little soap. Nice bready, yeasty malt taste overlaying a sweetness that offers a good balance. Not my favorite tripel but a decent one.

Bottel 33. Bière orange à mousse peu persistante. Subtils arômes de houblon, fleurs, fruits jaunes. Bouche bien ronde : légèrement sucrée, miel, épices ... amertume finale sans excès. Triple bien équilibrée que je placerais dans la moyenne haute de mes favorites.

yourilevesque (1073) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2016
Une Tripel légère, savoureuse et sans prétention. Une mousse de moyenne à faible, ce qui est rare pour une belge. Nez très floral avec en prime quelques épices et une rondeur sucrée et levurée ’’à la Belge’’. Une cuillère de mie de fleurs blanches des prés. Forte gazéification en bouche qui m’encombre l’estomac. Le liquide est très rond sans être pour autant écoeurant. Encore quelques épices en passant mais ces dernière sont légères et s’agencent bien aux houblons européens qui apportent une fine pointe d’amertume en fin de bouche. Plaisante.

puboflyons (2874) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 13, 2016
From the 330 ml bottle with an expiration date of 16-07-17. Serving at about 50 degrees. Gorgeous yellow pour with a light funnel of carbonation leading up to the softest, most delicate white head I have seen. 5 out of 5 for the look. Lovely aroma of apple, orange, lemon, Belgian candied sugar, toasted bread, Belgian yeast, and spiciness. 10 out of 10 for the aroma. Pleasant, medium body that is soft like a cushion. The taste brings out the same sweet and toasty malt character, orange and other fruit notes, and spices. No alcohol bite. Delightfully balanced. I cannot believe that I have not rated this one until now.

Just some characteristics and numbers due to heavy board gaming. Nice belgian tripel. Really good noble hoppiness and yeast esters.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016
Nez de levures très fruités aux notes sûres (citron, agrumes, léger de banane et très léger de mangue), épicé (clou de girofle, gingembre) et un très léger arôme malté (caramel très doux). Goût de levures fruitées légèrement acides, sucrées et sûres (agrumes, léger de banane, très léger de pêche et d’ananas) avec des notes épicées (clou de girofle, poivre) et légèrement herbeux lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût de caramel sucré et des notes de miel avec une moyenne amertume d’alcool et de houblon et d’épice (poivre léger) se rajoute en finale. Arrière-goût moyennement long, amer de rôti et d’alcool avec un léger goût fruité (zeste d’agrumes). [notes 2005]

Bottle. Pours an orange color with white head. Dusty, yeasty, spicy, bread aromas. Yeasty, dusty, bread, malty, slight honey flavors. Tasted back to back with St Bernardus Tripel. Both great examples, killer beers. I probably like the other better but just slightly.

Aggiebob (589) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy gold in color with a nice white head that is well maintained by the active carbonation. The aroma and flavor include clove, bread, and fruity citrus. Very nice.
